The latest cigar release from Cigar Dojo is a collaboration with Matt Booth and Room101 Cigars. It is called [untitled]. The project started back in February 2016 when Matt came up with a strange contest to have Dojo members post pictures of their feet in ramen noodles. From there it became a running joke and eventually became a cigar.
Eric Guttormson, Owner of Cigar Dojo says “Everyone knows that Matt Booth marches to the beat of his own drummer, but we’re also aware that Matt knows how to put together an amazing cigar, which has been proven many times over. The “limp noodle” will most certainly remind you of some of the best Room101 blends from the past, with its dark and juicy flavor profile.”
This blend comes out of Tabacalera William Ventura where Booth has been making his cigar since his return to the cigar industry. This is also the factory where Robert Caldwell makes most of his cigars. The cigar uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper that is a lighter shade than your typical Mexican San Andrés. From there comes a Sumatra binder with 100% Cuban-seed fillers comprised of Criollo ’98, Corojo ’99, and HVA. The cigar comes in one vitola, a 5.5″ x 52 belicoso that has been aged 6 months.
Matt Booth, founder of Room101 says, “I am overwhelmed with delight to finally participate in a collaborative effort with the “Cigar Dojonites.” This is a phenomenal cigar to smoke while Jay Walking or waiting on your car during an oil change or any other minor procedure. I am eager to have this product pollinate the Dojo community and to see people enjoying something that was such a pleasure to make.”
The cigar will only be available online from JR Cigar priced at $10 ($99.95 for the bundle) but Dojo members get 10% off for the cigars first week.
